Stop MSN Messenger Auto-start Apps
After I installed MSN Messenger on my OS X iBook, I discovered that it seemed to automatically load when I started the computer. This puzzled me. I did not have it in my login items, and there was no checkbox within the program to make it do that.

I finally realized that it was starting whenever Classic started, but no other time. Here is what I did to solve the problem:

  1. Make sure Classic is running.
  2. In the Finder, locate the folder where the actual MSN Messenger application resides.
  3. Highlite the application, and press Command-I.
  4. Check the checkbox labled "Open in the Classic environment".
  5. Launch the program.
  6. Once you have completed the configuration for MSN Messenger for Classic, press Command-; (for preferences).
  7. Under the General tab, uncheck the checkbox labeled "Always run this program...", then click OK.
  8. Use Command-Q to quit MSN Messenger.
  9. To make MSN Messenger run in OS X once again, uncheck the checkbox you checked in step 4.
Note that you can also do this from the pure OS 9 environment, eliminating steps 4 and 9.
